Geek VS Jock

I don’t remember from whom or where I picked this up from, but I thought it was interesting.  Read on..

Michael Jordan makes over $300,000 a game (before retiring).
That’s $10,000 a minute, an average of 30 minutes per tame.  With $40 million in endorsements, he makes $178,100 a day, working of not.  If he sleeps 7 hours a night, he makes $52,000 every night while visions of sugar plums dance in his head.

If he goes to see a movie, it will cost him (around) $7.00, but he will make $18,550 while he is there.  If he decides to have a 5 minute egg, he will make $618 while boiling it.  He makes $7,415 per hr. more than minimum wage (whenever this was calculated).  He will make $3,710 while watching an episode of friends.

If he wanted to save up for a new Acura NSX ($90,000) it would take him a whole 12 hours.  If someone were to hand him his salary and endorsement money, they would have to do it at the rate of $2.00 per second.

He will probably pay around $200 for a nice round of golf, but will be reimbursed $33,390 for that round.  Assuming he puts the federal maximum of 15% of his income into a tax deferred account (401k), he will hit the federal cap of $9,600 at 8:30 a.m. on January 1st.

If you were given a penny for every $10 he made, you would be living comfortably at $65,000 a year (as a single person).  He will make about $19.60 while watching the 100 meter dash in the Olympics.  He will make about $15,000 during the Boston Marathon.

While the common person is spending about $20 for a meal in his trendy Chicago restaurant, he will pull in about $5,600.  This year (the year this was created-unknown), he will make more than twice as much as all U.S. presidents for all of their terms combined.

Amazing isn’t it?  HOWEVER, if Jordan saves 100% of his income for the next 250 years, he will still have less than Bill Gates has today.

Game over. Geek Wins!

Have a fabulous day!!  🙂
